- Let me thank you for doing this interview for the "Pro Wrestling Interview Series Tour 2021".
- When and how did you get into Pro wrestling?
After receiving my lifetime ban from the FA, UEFA and FIFA for violence within football in 2017, my agent gave me some options for another career route. I chose wrestling as I was a fan as a kid watching WCW and WWF. And I like the pageantry of it all.
- Do you have any previous experience with martial arts from before you became a wrestler or other sports you did?
Just football. I still play football for my local team now, Enfield Old Grammarians. UP THE EOGs! I enjoy shooting some hoops or going to the driving range every now and then as well. I started gymnastics in 2020 which has been a lot of fun also.
- Can you still recall your first training sessions?
It was a cold January night, my friend and I went down to Bethnal Green to check out the facility where the training was being held...at first we couldn't find the place as there were no signs for it but we eventually made it in to this small space under the train lines. It was dark, it was dank, but there was a ring...and then the lights went off and the music came on and everyone started the infamous Lucha Warm Up, which is essentially a rave with lots of shouting. It. Was. Mental.
- How do you remember your first match, what was the feedback and what experience did you take from it?
I remember it well, you can also watch it on YouTube (Cassius Vs Evan Lee)! I believe the feedback was mainly positive, obviously it wasn't perfect and I did receive constructive criticism but I was happy with it. And before you ask, no, I did not get the 3 points for the win okay!!!
- Do you have a ‚dream opponent‘ you want to fight above all others?
From football - Adebayo Akinfenwa
From wrestling - as a tag team Hardyz, Edge & Christian, Dudleyz, New Day, The Elite. As a singles competitor, Cara Noir.
- Do you have/ had any Wrestling idols Or Childhoodheroes?
Rey Mysterio, Chris Jericho, The Rock, Kurt Angle and Taz.
- What are you doing when you not stand inside the ring?
Standing on a football pitch.
Or I'm in the gym lifting the big heavy weights or hanging from some rings.
Physical betterment aside, I'm getting more into cooking and make a decent chicken ramen.
- When a booker or company from your Country or around the world will book you , where can they contact you?
I can be contacted on any of my socials listed above or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Thank you very much for your time- I wish you much success at your next event´s .Thank you for your time! Stay well! Stay safe!And do you have some words for your fans at the end?
